I come to learning and game design with a wide variety of experience to draw from and a number of interests and passions that drive and focus the work I do. I invite you to have a look at my résumé or my LinkedIn profile for the details, but the gist of these are …

In May of 2015 I completed an M.A. in Digital Media Design for Learning—with a concentration in Games for Learning—at NYU. Prior to pursuing this degree, I worked for several years in the nonprofit development world, mostly for organizations dedicated to children and mostly as a grant writer.

Before nonprofit development, I obtained an M.A. in Literatures in English—as well as a Certificate in the Teaching of Writing—from Rutgers University. In between this degree from Rutgers and my undergraduate study there (B.A. in English and Anthropology), I worked in public television production and for a handful of other nonprofits, mostly dedicated to human rights and humanitarian health.

The learning theories I’m most compelled by are constructivism and constructionism. My principle design passions are narrative design, game design, and experience design. I am fascinated by human cognitive development–and its extraordinary potential. I thrive on synthesizing information and utilizing technology to its fullest, and I am driven both personally and professionally by the desire to communicate knowledge and understanding to others. Everywhere I’ve worked I have proven myself to be a committed self-starter and an adaptive, collegial, creative and hardworking team member.
